Here's a Few Things to Consider when keeping backyard Chickens in Brisbane.
The Size of Your Yard
Living closer to main cities probably means that your yard will be smaller, which is fine as chickens can be kept in small and large backyards so long as you have enough room in the yard where the chickens can get out and reign quite freely.
When keeping chooks, you will need to let them out of their coops on a daily basis, as it is important for their health, so please take this into consideration when planning the size of the coop and where you can put it in your yard.
You'll also find that each one of our coops have been clearly labelled with all the length, width, and depth dimensions which will help you to work out which size is best for you and your chickens.
You'll need to know the dimensions when taking into account the size of the coop, as you will also need to allow approximately 2 â€“ 3 square metres of yard per chook for when they are out of their coop.
Having enough room for your chooks to run around freely is important, skimping on space can cause your chooks to stress, they donâ€™t like being on top of each other and it can lead to pecking, cannibalism, and sometimes even death.
No two councils are the same when it comes to regulations, make sure that you check with your local council to see if there are any restrictions pertaining to how many chooks you are allowed to keep, and the types of chooks that you can keep, as some councils go as far as to stipulate the you can't keep roosters in your residential yard.
There's also usually some guidance on how much distance you need to keep from your neighbours boundary.
It's best to check the local council website for more details or give them a call directly.
